Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality

Access to Justice and Legal Costs: Discussion (Resumed)

Dr. Brian Doherty:

Also under the notice, in the specific section, there is a requirement to outline where there is a possibility that a third party may not be liable for all of the cost. Under the statute, that information has to be included in the notice and a clear explanation provided as to the possible impact on the consumer of the legal services.
